Which one of these connectors connects to the slot shown by the other persons hand? In other words which one of these connectors connects to that slot, the blue or the black?

I'm pretty sure that you just take that off and plug the hole with the little plug that comes with the Intake.

You connect the black one there. The blue one can just be taped up and zip tied somewhere. thumbsup thumbsup

SRI sounds pretty good, around 3-4k where the TRD exhaust dies out

Update on the sound since yall seem interested...
Whenever i start up the car and it idles, it sounds like a low growl (you can basically hear it over everything else in the engine)And i also have a Tanabe Racing Medallion Exhaust which the Intake and low growl of the exhaust sound excellent together. Whenever you actually drive and go up on the rpms it makes a quite bshh sound, the higher the rpms, the louder the sound. Its not As loud as a turbo, but it makes a similair quiter, noise.
Whenever i shut the car down for like 2 seconds you can hear it go BSHhhh love it (thats the part that sounds supercharged)!!! Ill post pics when im through with the car show my cars gonna be in on saturday so it will look nice. Ill also show yall a little bit of my new sponsorship decals happywink

I heard that short rams are bad cause, they suck up hot air from the engine bay confused Seems to make sense.

heat soak. when you sit on idle and start to go you bog a bit...but once you're going it's good.

as far as how it works...SCC was ablt to get their time down from 15.4 @ 1/4 mile stock to 14.8 with a RMM Short Ram and exhaust...not bad.

Is this like a CAI where I have to worry about water coming in? I bought this so it wouldnt hydroplane. Do those of you with short rams go out in the rain and not worry? I still wanna be able to drive in the rain without worrying about water comin in. Thanks
